Should I get another lawyer?

Dear fefe:

Greetings. If you gave him the tax exemption, I cannot imagine why you would be worried about breaching the separation agreement, since he is benefitting from your breach and has consented to the same (assuming that your behavior was a breach).

As far as the car insurance, I would just e-mail your ex and explain in writing what happened. Keep a copy of the e-mail in case he sues you for the same. Best of luck.

I went to speak with a lawyer, and told him about the lack of info/cooperation from my ex-husband. When I told him the auto insurance had been moved to another company, and my ex didn’t tell me, that I had actually breached the separation agreement. How can I pay for something if I don’t know when its due or where it is? I also gave my ex the tax exemption for that year anyway. In our separation agreement it has us listed as odd/even tax exemption years. If I gave him the tax exemption for that year, have I still breached the agreement, even though he never kept me informed?

Thanks!
